Dear Monica: I’m about to sell the house that I have owned for many years. How much do I have to disclose about repairs and upgrades I’ve done? Jeff D.
Dear Jeff: A seller is supposed to disclose all material facts to a buyer. It’s not easy to remember everything you have done to your property, but you probably have invoices and other records showing what you have spent during your ownership.
In addition to your own records you will also provide the buyer with professional home and pest inspections, a title report, a natural hazard report, and other mandated items. Disclose any important neighborhood issues. It will serve you and the buyer well to be as thorough as possible.
